Incoming: 250,000 More Beta Invites - Wave 4
Blizzard is still working hard to make everyone happy and sent another wave of 250,000 Beta Invites, bringing the total to 550,000 Annual Pass Invites since the initial wave of beta testing!

As with previous waves, it’s going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Battle.net Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you’ll see the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.

We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, and we’re working hard to get you into the beta. We know you’re excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we’ll keep you posted here in the forums when we’re ready to send out another wave.

    During the Cataclysm Beta Test, there were no issues like this. The client came down really smooth, I had no lags. They shouldn't invite so many players if their servers cannot handle that amount lol.
    You must have not been on a populated server. The same exact things happened at launch as I see in screenshots of the MoP beta. That's why I've decided that I'm going to roll a Panda instead of trying to power level to 90. It might be busy right now on the beta servers, but everyone will be trying to powerlevel at launch. It's just not worth the frustration.

    Woo I got in! Oh wait nvm stuck at 10% and from EU so can't post on the tech forums... Guess i'm back to waiting?

    Awesome screen shot of all the Pandas! As for people stopping you from handing in quests, ticket them. That's what I do on the live servers. Surely it comes under "griefing" to deliberately try to prevent someone else from enjoying their in game experience.

    It's actually 1.4mln so it's not even half - if they going to invite 250k each week it will still take another month till end.

    Bit OT becouse it's about D3 beta but damn it's so funny when you compare it with MoP beta :
